A vatted whisky from undisclosed Australian mainland distilleries, bottled by Tasmanian Independent Bottlers.
'The Craft' is the name given to the series of vatted and blended creations from TIB and this is the first release. With the two distilleries undisclosed, all we know for sure is that cask TIB ??0020 was an ex-sherry barrel and made up 90% of the mix and TIB ??0011, an ex-bourbon cask, make up 10%.
This was bottled February 2019 at 48.1% and is described as "easy drinking" by the producer.
Tasmanian Independent Bottlers is a new venture, driven by the team behind Heartwood – Australia’s best known indie bottler. Casting their net beyond the home state, TIB will look to bottle accessible single malts and spirits from across Australia. Avoiding the natural cask strength tendencies of Heartwood (which have topped 70% in the past), TIB releases will be offered between 46% and 50% ABV.
